Hi Lynn,

Welcome to the forum. I am sorry you are unwell, but being diagnosed and started on plaquenil is a good start on the road to feeling better. Read up on MCTD and lupus and feel free to ask questions.

Thanks for switching to lower case letters - much easier to read:wink2:

Looking forward to getting to know you better,

Welcome -Glad you found us

Hi Lyn

I'm glad you have been given a d/x for all your woes you have.

Good that you are onto Plaquenil, it has helped me since Sep 2007,d/x with lupus like symptoms. However I've had many symptoms, so finding out more. I have been down to a connective tissue doctor, in so many areas, so I'll have to see his report soon, also kidney and vascular- no specialist in my area. I am on northeast coast of Australis.

We look forward to your posts and see :wink2:how you are going-all the best.

So happy you found this site. You will love it here and come to find that the people are supportive, informative and compassionate too.

It is my home away from home. Read all you can about Lupus as knowledge is power.

A great book......The Lupus Book by Dr. Daniel Wallace. I highly recommend you get one.

Hope to get to know you better. Sorry about your diagnosis but sure glad you found this site. Join us in the chat room sometime.:wink2:

Hi Lynn and welcome :welcome: glad you found us :)

Sorry about your diagnosis but I'm glad you had a Rheumy who recognised it and started you on treatment, that's half the battle. The Plaquenil will take a while to start helping but is a good med to help control disease activity.

Just a note could you please not use text speak as many of our members have trouble understanding it ........... thanks :)

love
Lily
